The Chocolate Cellar LLC

The Chocolate Cellar was founded by Laura and Carol, a mother-daughter team focused on the art of crafting fine chocolates. As a student, Carol spent a summer abroad in France and brought home with her a vision. Central is the idea that the enjoyment of chocolate should be an experience involving all the senses. Fine chocolates are not made by adding certain ingredients together in the right proportions. It is art and it is passion. It is a belief in the love of chocolate and the pleasure it can bring to all.
